My teaching experience has spanned the course of 30 years! The majority of those years, I taught Biology, AP Biology and Anatomy at a public high school. In 2015, I retired from full-time teaching and I now teach part-time at an area technical college instructing adult high school students in biology and online wellness courses. I also teach professional enrichment classes at local colleges for fellow educators, specifically focusing on the use of incorporating technology into the curriculum. My business, MMB Communication Solutions, also provides technology training for school districts.
As you can gather from my experience profile, I am a life-long learner who has continually embraced and incorporated technology as a tool to enhance my curricula. In addition, my instruction focuses on the 21st century teaching skills of: *Communication and collaboration *Initiative and self-direction *Productivity *Social interactions *Leadership *Information literacy *Technological proficiency ~ Most of the lessons in my store will be available as Google documents that you can simply copy, edit and share with students or insert into Google Classroom. Additionally, these documents can easily be downloaded to a Microsoft Word or a PDF format.
